Rain didn’t dampen the spirts at Skylark Vintage, Country and Air Show

TORRENTIAL rain failed to dampen spirits at the Skylark Vintage, Country and Air Show on Sunday.

Johnny Dee, a presenter on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, donned a mask to entertain the crowds with his version of classic ‘Singin’ in the Rain’.

Medieval re-enactments, classic vehicles and displays by the Vintage Dakota Aircraft and Royal Air Force were just some of the highlights of an action-packed event at the showground near Wimblington.

Money was also raised for the East Anglian Air Ambulance, Macmillan nurses and children’s charity Kisses for Kids.

Paul Salter, showground chairman, said: “The show scaled and soared to new heights this year. For the first time we’re planning to introduce shire horses for next year’s event. We hope to see even more people at our 2012 show.”
